WOT2Grow - Community Orchard

What a roller coaster of weather this last month and the orchard has responded accordingly! The peaches and nectarines have done the in /out flowering along with the apricots as they don't know if it is warm enough to stay out!

At last the pears, plums, damsons, gages and early apples have decided to break out and show us early blossom and super leaves. What a treat at this time of the year.

We are busy weeding and feeding the autumn raspberries and have yet to start on the trees so we can feed them too. The rest of the soft fruit is waiting to be fed so we have lots to do!

The first spraying has been done with garlic extract, seaweed extract and soft soap to help combat fungus and bugs and their eggs.

Everything is looking good and the orchard is a great place to walk, relax and enjoy the beautiful local countryside. Do go along and enjoy!
